Information on violence


In case of death, contact the parish of the deceased to obtain a burial place. Funeral arrangements are usually made by a private funeral home. To determine the assets and estate of the deceased, contact a solicitor or the legal aid office. Financial help for funeral costs can be enquired at the social benefits office. If the deceased should be transported to his or her home country fur burial, contact the embassy of your own country. Remember to cancel the agreements of the deceased (e.g. telephone, electricity and the internet), terminate any rental agreements and empty the apartment. Help in clearing out the apartment is available from the Sininauha association or the Luotsi foundation, for example.
